finding and fake taliban in libya dozens of civilians reportedly killed and injured in clashes as pro-government militia palms a gadhafi loyalist town for over two weeks. the assault comes exactly a year since nato bombed the former regime from office promising freedom and democracy to libyan people. the russian company and us now just one step closer to becoming the world's leading oil producer as the board of b.p. reportedly greenlights one of the biggest ever energy deals. and a car blast in lebanon's capital kills eight people including a top security official violent protests are robbed across the country and
politicians say the syrian conflict is spilling over the border. thank you for joining our team where we are on screen and online twenty four hours a day seven days a week i'm kara terror while an artillery barrage and multiple killings that's what the residents of libya's bani walid are still witnessing twelve months on from the nato back for a bold which toppled the country's regime you might find some of the following images disturbing the besieged town traditionally loyal to the ousted moammar gadhafi has been the target of attacks by pro-government militia over a dozen people including children have reportedly been killed there in the last three days the city is also suffering from shortages of food water and medicine archie's going to. can now reports bani walid isn't the only thing jim of libya's
new leaders. a year after the killing of warmer khadafi not only has the new government of libya immediately illegal to criticize the february revolution of last year but a group of militias affiliated with the country's defense ministry is the shelling parts of the country which are considered khadafi strongholds that bombing it from the air and rockets because then you would need was one of the towns which stood against the intervention of the outside world in bani walid local media report that the strikes have killed around a dozen people including children but apparently the people of bani walid are not the only ones persecuted by various militia groups in libya we saw the total wiping out of the thirty thousand strong town to want to go many are black libyans which the misrata brigades which are also laying siege to bani walid call themselves the brigades for the black scheme it's such is that wonderful humanitarian and freedom loving. and discourse that they wiped out the town they've been chasing the people
toward the civil war has left libya shredded in pieces with radical islamists taking advantage of the chaos basically what's happening is that in different cities here we pointed out the main ones tripoli is in town misrata each of them has their own army of militias there loosely united as the so-called libyan national shield at the same time they're not really under the control of the new defense ministry they're basically on their own according to various reports most of them are even suspicious of the new government in tripoli on top of that division we also have one hundred forty tribes in the country one hundred forty tribes many of them have long running grievances against each other and they're located very close to each other for example the town of bani walid that we mentioned in the report is not even two hours away from misrata so amid all the food and lawlessness people in those places no anything can have. until last year
coalition forces armed to the teeth in order to oust moammar gadhafi today the country was flooded with weapons of all kinds and this they made twenty million weapons are still freely circulating in libya that's in a country of six million people it's roughly three guns per person today there are multiple assassinations around benghazi different parts of libya where people are settling scores of all sorts of stripes it's chaotic forces in libya well those are the weapons of the most they have the agencies not to be just as eager to have tribal or that indeed politics despite the ongoing atrocities and chaos up until this september washington had the revolution in libya check is a foreign policy victory for president obama after all the u.s. provided most of the foreign power which led to the capture and the killing of the legal leaders. yes we came we saw he died.
but only after the tragic attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and the murder of the american ambassador did leave you come back into the spotlight it raises the question for the administration why didn't you see this coming if there was intelligence about the growing presence of al qaeda in eastern libya we have an election coming up and no one wants to take blame for messing up the arab spring president obama's most recent remarks suggested that his administration is not finished in libya we are going to find out who did this and we're going to hunt them down because one of the things that i've said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with americans we go after them the obama administration has received congressional approval to allocate money for a special unit reportedly of some five hundred people who will allegedly be training counterterrorism forces in libya also there are anonymous reports that the cia is asking for more drones specifically for libya none of this sounds new drone strikes training forces in foreign. nations but past experience has shown when the
u.s. goes about cleaning up the mess it often gets even messier in washington i'm going to check on political analyst dr ibrahim aleutian says libya is being deliberately pushed into chaos as a gateway open for a heavy influx of extremists the involvement of western countries was the source of trouble for libya as a whole we have seen the state has become this mantle as happened in iraq and somalia whatever the nato has walked or u.s. troops of walked and in fact there is not all of law and libya brought. into libya and now into syria again it's the same was turned involvement with the support of both through dollars from qatar and saudi arabia that is handing the country over to a group of fun out there criminals who are hell bent on on blood torture slipping
throats and what have you bringing the country a buck and to medieval darkness so. we have seen very clearly what these people are aiming to do they want to punish when they will leave for its stance against the invasion of libya by nato this is a form of collective punishment against the whole population for standing up for the end of pendants and the sovereignty of their country and the violence and post revolt libya is being accurate in brain trust has called for the help of the international community hoping it could pressure the monarchy towards change but some experts think western self interest will ignore the will of the people. the peace board of directors is reportedly set to confirm the sale of its shares to the joint venture t n k b p two the russian all giant i snatched it would make our staff the world's biggest oil producer if the deal went through more on that from our peter. alfre. well it's a deal it's been
a long time in the coming and it would seem according to the front page of russian newspaper comments on saturday that it has been done now that deal will see role sniffed the buyouts b.p.'s fifty percent share of the company t n k b p just how much that's going to cost though well initially b.p. had said they wanted twenty eight billion dollars for their fifty percent share it seems that they've come to an agreement somewhere around the market seventeen billion dollars in cash and thirteen percent of gross nest stock now this is all part of process plan to try and take over all of t.n. k b p they're currently indication with b.p.'s russian partners a all to buy out the other half of the company if they can do the us then we also have to become the largest publicly traded oil company in the world but this well no reward without risk and the risk what role sniffed is taking in buying out ten k. b.p. is that they will and could debts of upwards of sixty billion dollars to put that
in a little context that says as much as some european nations have in debt nationally . so it's an awful lot of money there a lot of money in debt that they'll be taking on they'll be hoping that the oil price remains high so that they can get a good solid return on their investment in terms of b.p. and what that means to them here in russia it's certainly not the end for them they just they didn't want to be out of russia they just wanted an end to their partnership in t a k b p what they really want is to do business with rolls left and to get a slice of roles they have to be tension lucrative oil exploration rights for the arctic so this is all going to continue on for a little bit longer and deals will be done between roles they have to be bob's in the future but when we get confirmation that this is certainly going through a bring it all here i'll take massive crowds gather and london as british prime minister david cameron returns home from the e.u. summit but they are unlikely to be cheering him on we bring you more on the u.k.'s autumn of discontent later in the program plus. i mean it may romney were in the
movie in canada. at that them that as election day draws near americans prepare for all possible outcomes even a rake delectation artie's new york president asked the people of the big apple what they would do if their vote was stolen. a top lebanese opposition group is demanding the resignation of the country's prime minister saying he's personally responsible for a massive car bombing in the capital beirut eight people including a top security official died in the blast which devastated a christian neighborhood in the city top politicians were quick to put the blame on the syrian regime as the killed official was seen as a hard line phone and of president assad sunni muslims across the country were infuriated with the ass assassination their protests turned violent with reported gunfire in several cities and roads blocked by burning tires and beirut based expert on the middle east says the accusations against syria are dictated by
politics. already we have the now the political element coming into play some elements of the march fourteenth movement which is known to be anti bush. even before it was known to who was killed in this explosion they quickly point the finger at the syrian government now we saw a house on the head of intelligence security who apparently has a main killed more targeted that is known to be actually a roadblock for team is known not to be one of the supporters not to be very very likable person of the syrian government so i think now this would only lead to more and more bring this problem on fourteen i mean from their west and how is it being pointed at syria the question which must be raised in all of these cases is a who benefits from such an act i think you know if the syrian government does go ahead although we don't have any information but if it does go ahead with acts i think it's only in the during itself in committing suicide it is is the syrian government as such is that as to what sort of
a government all i myself don't see so. coming up for you later in the program playing a dangerous game plans to manage open fire at the footballers of a top russian team fortunately only using paintball guns and drop leaflets making sinister threats that's in just a few minutes to stay with our team. homeland security now has robot tunas seriously robot fish the drones in the sky spying on you just weren't good enough effect they've revealed that they're going to be using robotic hummingbird soon who how cute these things can only see you though above the water now during the one percent or less of your life that you spend swimming homeland security will be keeping you safe since nine eleven we've heard ad nauseum
that we need to be kept safe so americans have given up their rights but if things got that much safer honestly has any of the stuff ushered in some sort of peaceful utopia no it hasn't the best terrorism prevention would be to not bomb secular regimes in other countries like libya so that some fanatical wackos come the power that would help way more than robotic spy fish i hear a lot of people talk about personal responsibility a lot of speeches and yes personal responsibility is a key component of the american way slip people provide for their own defense what is going to protect you more a shotgun under the bed or terminator two so homeland security can of tuna right but i just might be. to build a new. mission

moment because it is it same with great history in russia but it has lost but it has only won three of the last nine games the russian finally even if they stick their blocking in the table the risk is so much that is what happened as we say over the last twenty four hours but also that. i mean on the back of the series since it into reach broader against you but you call it it took place but they're training ground glass much. all right other news now from across the globe the family of former cuban leader fidel castro has denied rumors he suffered a massive stroke friday saw several reports citing event as well and doctors saying that castro is in a vegetative state and has weeks to live. in magic though has made claims before which later proved to be false saying in april heaven as well as hugo chavez was days away from death. a ship carrying humanitarian aid and activists to gaza has been attacked and stopped by israeli forces those on board say masked

electronic voting machines owned by a company with strong republican ties are set to count the vote in ohio which very well could determine the outcome of the two thousand and twelve us presidential election so is there a chance that mitt romney could steal this election this week let's talk about that do you think it's possible that mitt romney could steal the election i think it's very possible i think it's close and it's going to come down to the last minute so it's going to be something a little like that that could sway it which is unfortunate yeah and a lot of people don't even know about it they just think oh well he won so that but yeah what do you do about it want to make sure you go vote for brock. and tweet about her right now it's very much the people on the street they talk about what i mean if mitt romney wins i'm moving to canada. is that them that simple one of my ficus houses one day they'd be a third party would win the election no it didn't matter does it matter whether the
you know green libertarian conservative whatever just to break the halls of the two party system and if he's a she that wouldn't be bad either right to say what i want to magically said he says no use to that does it concern you that there's things like best in our country in general for sure that kind of thing shouldn't shouldn't really happen. but i guess it does it happens a lot of places you would never find out about you know why don't we find out about this stuff why isn't there more transparency about what's really going on because like you say there's lots of money and whether or not you think romney's going to steal the election the bottom line is those evoluting machines in ohio are owned and operated by a company whose employees have given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the romney campaign so they very. well could be determining who wins ohio state that often determines who wins the election. and we are keeping a close on the upcoming us elections i mean two top candidates are china will also
